Pumpkin for Healthy Kids

Pumpkin is loaded with nutrients that can boost your infants immune system. It is high in beta-carotene, which your body turns into fat-soluble vitamin A.  

Studies show that vitamin A can strengthen immune function and help fight childhood infections. Kids with a vitamin A deficiency can have a weaker immune system.

Pumpkin is also high in vitamin C which has been shown to increase white blood cell production, help immune cells work more effectively and make wounds heal faster.
